Kitzbuhel is the perfect place for relaxing and enjoying the best skiing and snowboarding. The town itself is a delight. At the junction of several valleys, Kitzbuhel forms part of an ancient trade route linking Bavaria and Italy. A short walk from the slopes is the ancient town center. A pastel wall of 15th century store fronts with ornately painted stucco encircles this pedestrian-only precinct with the long-established shops of every description. Apres-ski and nightlife in Kitzbuhel is unparalleled.
Europe's specialty is skiing above the tree line and Kitzbuhel's upper lifts provide plenty of it. At lower elevations, the runs descend into a world of high meadows, pine forests and isolated mountain farms, far from the clamor of the resort. The most enterprising farmers transform their barns into rustic restaurants for the winter season. Weiss bier, bratwurst and gluhwein highlight the menus.
Kitzbuhel's Safari is an interconnected lift and trail complex extending over fifteen miles, racking up nearly twenty thousand feet of vertical drop along the way. Even those of the modest ability will delight in this day-long odyssey on the blue and red runs. A free bus returns weary skiers & snowboarders to Kitzbuhel at day's end. Spent skiers or snowboarders can then relax with afternoon tea or perhaps rendezvous with new found friends at a local pub.
Your vacation will be spent a beautiful 4-star Hotel Tiefenbruner located in the center of town with it's lifts 400m away and a bus stop just 30m from your front door. After a wonderful stay you will return to the airport and return home.
